People often ask whether Essential Oils technology masks or truly eliminates mal-odors. The Answer: Yes it eliminates organic odors according to local expert Mike Martin of Special Touch Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning.  

Odor Masking vs. Odor Neutralization

To mask is to increase overall odor intensity in order to forcibly "cover-up" an existing mal-odor. This means introducing a new odor that is more powerful smelling than the problematic odor you wanted to eliminate. It results in a further bombardment of perceived scents that does nothing to eliminate the source of the original mal-order.

To neutralize is to eliminate or cause malodorous molecules to be imperceptible on a molecular level through direct counteract measures with an additional compound, in this case, an essential oil compound comprised of plant, flower and tree extracts. Mal-odor molecules are then changed through chemical interaction, called odor-pairing or encapsulation, into a new molecular form that either no longer smells or that is not volatile enough to be perceived. In this way, the malodorous molecule is lessened to the point of nonexistence as it has been broken down beyond recognition.

When essential oil compounds are volatilized into the air as a dry vapor, they react directly with odorous molecules in the air. This molecular, chemical interaction allows Essential Oils to effectively neutralize organic mal-odors.

Why Essential Oils?

Special Touch Carpet Cleaning does introduce an additional fragrance (which some incorrectly attribute to masking) due to their complex formula of naturally occurring essential oils, it is the exact complexity of oil formula that goes one step further to effectively eliminate the source of the malodorous molecules through encapsulation or odor pairing neutralization technology. While there are many essential oils, not all of them are capable of neutralizing organic odors such as smoke, urine, skunk and mildew. The correct blend of oils required for effective and permanent odor elimination is carefully crafted. This is why Essential oils technology is so unique. The formula of Essential Oils offers a broad spectrum neutralization of odor causing elements like aldehyde, amine, diamine, sulfide, lactone, carbozylic acid, ester, carbylamines, ketone, and other carbons.

It is thanks to essential oils that Special Touch Carpet Cleaning may proudly claim to offer our customers a green solution for their mal-odor issues rather than be forced to seek out harsh chemicals and ozone producing products. Many existing odor eliminating solutions expose both occupants and the professionals using the equipment to health issues like respiratory disease and lung damage. These products can cause harm to our natural environment too. Special Touch's technology is CFC-Free, nontoxic and VOC compliant.

Why Dry Vapor?

Essential Oils further distinguishes itself from competitors with a dry vapor delivery technique which adds zero moisture to the treatment and is otherwise imperceptible beyond the aroma of essential oils. This technology doesn't produce any harmful ozone or hydroxyl, doesn't involve any fogging equipment, and isn't as messy or sticky as gels and sprays. Dry vapor compounds have high mobility in the air and are able to safely penetrate porous substances such as wallboards, wood, carpeting, cement, insulation, and other surfaces in a way that competitors products cannot.
